Lacons dray in FramlinghamAny pub or ex-pub near the coast with eagles (the Pettistree Three Tuns) is likely to have been a Lacons pub.  The Great Yarmouth brewery served 1760 until 1968 when Whitbread who had bought it three years earlier closed it in the American manner.  To our surprise at least the brewery resuscitated last year ... what goes round comes round.

All things will pass ...Throwback Thursday:  Eight years ago today torrential rain (nothing new about that then) took out the power in Framlingham for a couple of hours prompting poking abouts in Fore Street (so nothing new about that then).

Earlier this week catalytic converters stolen in Saxmundham and Hollesley.

We shopped in the Saxmundham Tescos for the first time this week, no Granny Smiths, staff didn't much want to be there, a bland experience.  Disappointing that the three small street side shops part of the development are a Costa and a charity and a betting shop.
